#SNUG25 and 14LPP process

Some highlights from Samsung during #SNUG Silicon Valley 2015 which I deemed interesting:

  • 14LPP Process: 30 tapeouts since 2012, 6 product tapeouts in 2014.
  • 28LPP 9T 15% lower pwr versus 12T.
  • 14LPP 9T 1/3 lower.
  • Benefits over 14LPP over 28LPP: 67% speedup / 59% less power / 45% less area

Samsung and GlobalFoundries are collaborating on the 14nm process. The 14LPP process technology is a higher performance version over LPE, planned for early 2015.
